Programs of the Church

For a small church there are a lot of events and activities to choose from at Lincoln Street. It’s a reflection of the interests that individual members bring to the community and the community then embraces.

Every week:

Sunday School: Sundays, ~9:15 a.m. (following the Children’s Time in worship) – A program for 3 year olds through grade school children. Please see our Children’s page for further details.

Other Gatherings for study and play arise monthly or seasonally. See our calendar for further information:

Book Group – Titles we’ve read in the past year are: The Moor's Last Sigh, The End of Life Book Club, City of Light, The Tiger's Wife, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet, and Damascus Nights

Scrapbook and Craft Project Parties – Sometimes the only way to get to those projects is to make a date with friends. We gather in the church basement, share treats and stories and get a few hours to work on those projects that are fun but never get our time.

Special Concerts- Svila: a Portland-based, women’s Balkan choir, John Nilsen: jazz fusion pianist and his band, Harpers for Heifer Concert: area harpists performing to raise awareness of and funds for Heifer Project International

Neighborhood Seasonal Festivals - Easter Egg Hunt, Trick or Treating Stand, Gingerbread House-Making Party

Poetry Nights – In the dark days of winter, we gather to share our favorite words of poetry and song, in order to share a little light and love.

A Service Blessing the Animals – Outdoor worship to which those unseen members of our families were invited and celebrated. Dogs, cats, a rabbit, a gecko and even a stuffed penguin were among our special guests.

Used Book Sale – We are avid readers at Lincoln Street. And, we have discovered the fun in pooling together our used, read, dog-eared books and sharing them with the neighborhood in our sale to raise money for service and outreach.
